Video: Music project using gold fish to create sound - Imagine the sounds swimmers would make?

Quintetto promo from Quiet ensemble on Vimeo.

From Vimeo:

"Quintetto" is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call "invisible concerts" of everyday life.
The vertical movements of the 5 fishes in the acquariums is captured by a videocamera, that translates (through a computer software) their movements in digital sound signals.
We'll have 5 different musical instruments creating a totally unexpected live concert.

The installation was born with the collaboration of the Aesop studio
. In 2009 Quintetto wins the third prize at the "International contemporary art prize-Celesteprize" - Berlin.
